Title: What are integer partitions?

The word "partition" has numerous meanings in mathematics. Here, we will discuss the idea of integer partitions, which have been investigated in depth since Euler. Since then, many other famous mathematicians have made interesting contributions to this field. Several theorems about partitions will be presented in this talk, along with some of the standard methods to prove these theorems. No knowledge beyond Calculus II will be required to understand this talk.
